Christmas and Holiday Cheer from thebeerchaser

Since starting this blog a few months after I retired in late May this year, I have visited nine establishments on thebeerchaser’s Portland bar tour.  They have included:

  • Classic “dive bars” such as the Yukon in Sellwood and Joe’s Cellar in NW Portland,
  • Traditional neighborhood pubs such as the Brooklyn Park Pub, the Gladstone Street Pub and the Twilight Room,
  • Brew Pubs including Coalition and Amnesia and
  • Some distinguished alehouses or watering holes that don’t fit a category including the Buffalo Gap Saloon and Prost

In June, the beerchaser got his start

Some felt this Tour was not too smart

Portland bars are North, South, East and West

How does one locate the pub that’s best?

Yukon, Gladstone Street, Coalition, Buffalo Gap all deserve a toast

Don’t forget the T-Room, Amnesia, Joe’s Cellar and Prost

And the Brooklyn Park was a wonderful fit


There are more bars to see before I quit.

Many “Frosty” mugs to drink before I quit.

May your New Year be a happy one,
